University wasn't like this in my day......(another reason)

The NYTimes reports about the growing trend for professors to become more accessible and "user friendly" to their students. They aren't just there to teach, but to entertain.........Professors of all ranks and disciplines are revealing such information on public, national platforms: blogs, Web pages, social networking sites, even campus television.

The article goes on. When scholars were recently given the chance to refute student criticism posted on the Web site, a cult-hit television series, “Professors Strike Back,” was born. The show, which has professors responding on camera to undergraduate gripes such as “boring beyond belief,” made its debut in October on mtvU, a 24-hour network broadcast to more than 7.5 million students on American college campuses. Check out this professor as he responds to his students.
